General information

A safe visit to Lumière

Right now, we're taking some extra precautions to ensure your visit will be as safe and pleasant as possible.

  • You can only buy film tickets via this website.
  • Unfortunately, after the film has started, we can't allow you in. Our cinema halls open 15 min before the film starts.
  • We keep 1,5 meters distance everywhere.
  • Wearing a face mask is mandatory. The face mask can come off when you take a seat.
  • Upon entry, visitors must be able to show a valid Corona Entry Pass in combination with a valid ID. The Corona Entry Pass is mandatory from 13 years. We’re not allowed to grant you access without a Corona Entry Pass.
  • Stay at home if you show any symptoms.

Movie screening cancelled?

Have you booked a ticket for a movie screening that starts after 3:00 PM on Sunday 28, Monday 29, Tuesday 30 or Wednesday 1 December? Then you will receive a message by e-mail as soon as possible, your tickets have been refunded (the amount will appear on your account within three working days). Movie specials that have been canceled will be moved to another date or time as much as possible.

Corona Entry Pass

We are obliged to check all our visitors for a Corona Entry Pass in the CoronaCheck app. This is mandatory in both our restaurant and cinema.

Please take note of the following:

  • In addition to the CoronaCheck app, the yellow booklet or a paper corona certificate are valid. If you do not have a vaccination or recovery certificate, you can book a free covid test via
  • Generate a QR code in your app before you visit Lumière to avoid delays at the door.
  • Don't forget to bring your ID.
  • The Corona Entry Pass is mandatory for visiting the cinema, the restaurant, as well as for room rental.
  • You will be asked to show your Corona Entry Pass and your ID at the entrance or the restaurant.
  • We’re not allowed to grant you access without a Corona Entry Pass. If you don’t have a Corona Entry Pass – or if you notice any symptoms on the day of the screening – it’s possible to return your ticket(s) (by phone or via, stating your order number, and referencing ‘E-tickets retour’) as long as the film screening hasn’t yet taken place.

House rules

To ensure the best possible cinema experience, we have drawn up the following rules:

  • No tickets will be sold for films after they have started (start times can be found on the website).
  • The cinema hall will open 15 minutes before the film starts. This gives you plenty of time to find a seat. After the film starts, the auditorium doors close. You can't access the auditorium after the doors have closed, so be on time.
  • Food is not permitted in the auditoriums so as not to disturb or inconvenience other guests.
  • Please do not use your mobile phone during the film.

Lumière adheres to the national agreements pertaining to the audience suitability rating (film classifications/age certificates). According to the law, children younger than 16 will not be granted access to a film with a minimum age of 16 (even if they are accompanied by an adult). Identification may be requested. Children will only be granted access to films with other age limits if they are accompanied by an adult.

Limited mobility

Lumière offers assistance to visitors with a disability or limited mobility. Please call in advance to ask which auditorium the film will be screened in, as Studio 6 is not yet accessible to people with limited mobility.

  • All of our six auditoriums are accessible to wheelchair users.
  • Lumière has wheelchair-accessible aisles and a lift.
  • We also have a separate toilet for visitors with a disability or mobility issues.
